Hamilton for a win, Kimi 2nd, Webber 3rd just to liven things up


But more likely to Vettel, Alonso, Massa.

It reminds me of Magny Cours, a nice track built in the wrong place.

I'm pretty certain that the Vettel roadshow is now unstoppable.

Vettel for the win and the Driver's championship.

Would to see FA win just for his ability to have dragged the donkey around to impossible results all season

Hopefully Mclaren perform a little better here. I really just want it to be close with everyone going into the last race.

Red Bull were awfully dominant last weekend though, I feel we may see more of the same.

I'm sure we all thought that after Valencia - there is still hope. But I reckon Hamilton can make up 40 points on Alonso but not on Vettel so for the first time ever I'll be kind of hoping Massa's form is an indication that Alonso can win again.

Even though I live just down the road from the Red Bull factory I feel no sense of local pride - maybe it's just because I can't stand that vile fizzy caffine syrup.

Unless a couple of the other teams manage to duplicate the RB rear-wing device and do so effectively it's game over and we are due for a five race Vettel bore fest.
He really is very good, but why is he so difficult to like?

vettel? one of the easier guys to like i'd say, if you've seen any of his interviews with Lee Mckenzie or Jake Humpries and DC. very accessible, funny etc. at least, when he does ok in the race. proved his detractors wrong saying he can't overtake, etc.

sits easily in my top 3.

If hamilton gets rid of understeer that plagued him during most of the weekend, he has good chance to win there again. But Vettel probably second so no big points gain.

Mclaren have missed the boat. They have had the fastest car for 3/4 of the entire season and by far the strongest driver pairing yet as a team they have hemorrhaged scores of points through really stupid mistakes not befitting a top 3 team. RBR have now caught and overtaken them and have a 38 & 58 point advantage with 5 races to go.

Absolutely 100% guaranteed to be a Vettel walkover.

Might not watch.

Well no, it's not. Even if he is the fastest by some way, Grosjean might take him out at the 1st corner. hehe

I lke Nico, not sure he's as good as the best drivers, but this year's Merc is a straight fail despite the win in China, never heard Hulkenberg say anything, appears he can drive. Glock seems a nice quiet & able chap.

No it's no a German thing even if Rosberg is a Finn in disguise.

Can't remember what the track is like.

Would like to see a bit more rivialy between Lewis and Perez for the rest of the season, but if McL give LH a balanced car he'll be long gone.

Frankly the last thing I want to see is Vettel storm off for 5 laps and manage a lead to the end and win another WDC, it's nothing personal, but it's boring.

Is it too fanboy to ask for a LH win and SV to be Pastored and FA to be Grosjeaned?

Red Bull was absolutely dominant in Valencia, but look at their performance in the following races. I think Suzuka was a fluke more than anything else. We don't know who will be dominant in Korea.

Last year's highlights: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdLrdYSNS4Y

As Webber describes it, the track is a fast Budapest. Lots of tight curves, interconnected by some long straights. Cars with strong drive from slow or medium corners, and high top-end speed will be good here.

McLaren
Red Bull = Ferrari = Lotus
Sauber = Williams = Mercedes

If RB run away with both Championships then Whitmarsh and the chump from Williams should be given the tin

Exactly this in my opinion, that stalling rear diffuser that Gary explained at Suzuka looks like exactly the development RB needed...
